Early Years encompasses Nursery and Reception classes and, for many of our pupils, is the first introduction to life at St Catherine’s. They benefit from a child centred approach to learning and a rich mix of child and adult directed activities.
St Catherine’s is a Catholic girls’ school set beside the beautiful river Thames, in Twickenham. We have over 100 years’ experience in independent education and welcome girls of all faiths and backgrounds to our happy, vibrant community where they will grow in self-confidence and experience success.
St Catherine’s is a caring school in which every girl is encouraged to explore her spiritual, academic and personal potential. We are motivated by two inspirational sayings. The first is our school motto ‘Not Words, but Deeds’ which captures our emphasis on action and on community life. The second is from St Catherine of Siena, after whom the school is named: ‘Be who God wants you to be and you will set the world on fire’. This encourages girls to focus on their own gifts and to be ambitious and creative. In this community everyone is valued.
